Iowa’s Froot Loops and Cheese Breakfast Pizza…Would You Eat It?
There's a pizza place in Des Moines, Iowa, known for it's Chinese Food / Pizza fusions; Crab Rangoon Pizza, General Tso's Chicken Pizza, Ramen Pizza, Fongolian Beef, and more. Now they're known for a Froot Loops pizza!
The pizza place is called Fong's, and the Loopy Fruits Pizza has a sweet cream cheese sauce with mozzarella and a layer of Froot loops. After it comes out of the oven it gets a Greek yogurt/condensed milk drizzle.
According to the Today Show, the Cofounder of Fong's, Gwen Page said,
“I guess this — in its funny little quirky way because that’s Fong’s to a T — is a way of spreading kindness...You look at this pizza and it’s a rainbow. It should bring a smile to your face, even in the form of, 'Wow, that’s crazy, I gotta try that’ or ‘Wow, those guys are crazy! I can’t believe they’re doing that.'”
The menu has plenty of regular pizzas. Big Whoop. You can get those anywhere. But if it's late night, after bar, and you have a certain kind of itch, maybe only a Ramen Pizza can scratch it. Because, let's be honest, late at night noodles rule.

It's one thing to argue about Froot Loops belonging on pizza, but it's another to nail down the name of various foods we know and love. Like Hot Dish. Sure, it's Hot Dish here, but in Michigan, it's a casserole (because it's cooked IN a casserole). Another is when you pop a hole in a piece of bread, butter the heck out of it, and fry it in a pan with an egg in the hole. What do you call that? There are 14 different names...
